FAQ
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for a rental car should preferably be made by credit card. It is possible to pay by debit card, however at the rental counter you will need a credit card issued to the main driver in order to secure the deposit for your rental car.
Who is allowed to drive the rental car and what are the conditions?
A rental car can be driven by a main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. The main and additional drivers are to present a valid driving license, which they have been in possession of for at least one year (please refer to the rental conditions), and a valid identity card/passport. Additionally, the main driver is to present a valid credit card issued in their name.
Do I have to pick up and return the car at any time? What happens if I am late for pick-up?
We recommend that you pick up the car at the agreed time as the availability of the car cannot be guaranteed in case of a delay. As a rule, local suppliers keep vehicles available up to 30 or 60 minutes after the agreed time. If a delay is inevitable, please contact the rental agency (you will find their contact details on the voucher).
What documents are required to pick up the vehicle?
When picking up the vehicle, the main driver is to present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driving's license and their valid credit card.

Albuquerque (NM) Attractions and Travel Tips

Cheap Car Rental Albuquerque (NM)

Car Rental in Albuquerque

As an eclectic desert crossroad on the famed Route 66, this Southwest city is best explored with an Albuquerque car rental. The area itself is awash with action-packed activities, and the surrounding red-hued canyons, enticing mountains and dusty trails all contribute to one of America’s best all-natural outdoor playgrounds. And then there’s the city itself; modern museums, great fusion food, and a rich cultural heritage drawn from Spanish and Native American influence. Perfect for an adventure in your cheap car rental from Albuquerque.

Main attractions in Albuquerque 

Albuquerque's historical draw is its Spanish-influenced Old Town, the city's beating heart. The town's old adobe buildings now function as modern restaurants and galleries, with plenty of tree shade and plazas to relax in. You'll find many of the city's most attractive museums in this district, including New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science, Albuquerque Museum and, for more eclectic tastes, the American International Rattlesnake Museum. The city also hosts the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History to the east of town, the country’s foremost museum on Atomic Age history. It's easy to get there in your rental car in Albuquerque.

Albuquerque is surrounded by some of the most fascinating natural landscapes in the state, with attractions like the Petroglyph National Monument being perfect for excursions with a car hire from Albuquerque. This large desert parkland features preserved lava fields adorned with thousand-year-old petroglyphs. You can walk in and among this awe-inspiring landscape, through Piedras Marcadas and Rinconada Canyon. Rent a car from Albuquerque if you’re looking to explore New Mexico’s geology, with the Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument just an hours’ drive away.

Tip:

Albuquerque was the setting for the global television hit, Breaking Bad. Fans of the show can tour where classic scenes were shot and were cast members liked to hang out. The sweeping and lonely desert landscapes which became integral to the show can also be reached with a rental car from Albuquerque.

***

Enjoy craft beer and good food in Albuquerque

Albuquerque is one of the best cities for local brewing talent. The city now hosts more craft beer breweries per capita than renowned centers of micro-brewing like Portland. Many of these award-winning craft beers can be sampled with a whistle-stop tour of the city's best breweries, like La Cumbre, Marble, and Gruet. You should pair this beer with the city's fantastic traditional New Mexico cuisine. Featuring heavy use of green chile and red chile, the favorite spots around town include El Bruno, Sadie, and El Patio de Albuquerque.

Fun activities for children in Albuquerque

Albuquerque is a perfect choice for family-friendly activities and excursions. Aside from the engaging museums and exhibits, the city's ABQ BioPark Zoo is a particular hit with young ones thanks to its action-packed feeding schedule. The BioPark also includes a beautiful botanical garden and an aquarium. For incredible views over the landscape that will delight children, take your rental cars from Albuquerque to the Sandia Peak Tramway, the country's longest aerial tram which climbs up to the 10,378ft summit of Sandia Crest.
